Tales From the Road

Let me preface this by saying — I am not really an idiot. In fact, I am a well-traveled professional who is comfortable with wandering around a new city with no plans or a map, communicating with locals when I don’t peak the language and finding a way to soak-up every offered experience in a new country. But that is on solo trips, and now I am planning to a nature travel experience with my family. Suddenly, the collected world-traveler who has lived for weeks out of a carry-on — scarves are the key to looking fabulous! — has turned into a stress ball...and something of an idiot.

Today we were at North Seymour where we took a hike and saw all the wildlife we had seen over the course of the week in one place which was fantastic! So we took advantage and made sure we took plenty of photographs!

We've just received this update from our Expedition Leader Jorge Salas, who is currently leading a group of International Expeditions' travelers in West Africa.

"We are now at Segou, on our way to Bamako, after exploring Timbuktu, Mopti, The Dogon Country and Djenne. It was a thrill to meet the Tuareg -- the "Blue Men" (and women) of the Sahara. The expedition is running perfectly and the amount of content is superb, thanks to our A+ lecturer and local guide. This is one of the greatest destinations of our planet."
